Reengineering the Design and Construction Process

A radical investigation of concrete frame design and construction is being carried out at BRE ’S Large-Building Test Facility at Cardington where once airships were built and the late Sir Alfred Pugsley learnt the value of structural testing on aeronautical frames. This assessment of BRE’s in situ concrete project, the first of four planned with Government support and the help of the concrete industry, has been compiled for The Structural Engineer by John D. Allen.
